Happy 75th Birthday, Queen Margrethe!

Today, the Queen of Denmark, Queen Margrethe II, had her 75th birthday. As with any royal birthday or public holiday, the buses all had their Danish flags out all over the country  The Queen had a birthday gala in Copenhagen last night, and the celebrations continued today with wake-up calls, carriage rides, a lot of waving, and more fancy meals. Royalty from around Europe attended.

Thousands were waiting at Amalienborg palace to see the Queen on her birthday today.

I especially like looking at the pictures. I LOVE when ladies rock hats!

And, really, how charming is it that the country gets to help wake up the Queen on her birthday?
